Storyline

Until now, Zak Gibbs' greatest challenge has been finding a way to buy a car. But when he discovers an odd wristwatch amidst his father's various inventions and slips it on, something very strange happens. The world around him seemingly comes to a stop; giving the effect that everyone has come to a stop. Zak quickly learns how to manipulate the device, and he and his quick-witted, beautiful new friend, Francesca, have some real fun. What they soon realize, though, is they are not alone in hypertime. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Doesn't stop the clock, but a good solid kid movie.
30 March 2002 | by dmturnerSee all my reviews

My husband and I were looking for an evening's mindless entertainment and this was it. Nice special effects which don't dominate the movie, a far-fetched plot with some pseudoscientific background, and directing which doesn't present teenagers as hip monsters, bizarre brats, or improbable geniuses. In fact, I'd say my only complaint was that the teenagers were maybe a tad too wholesome. Nice to see the gravel-voiced French Stewart with a good part. My husband (who normally likes decadent movies) said enthusiastically as the lights rose, "That was really excellent." I don't think I'd go that far, but consider this: the theater was full of 10-year-olds but I didn't hear any noise or anyone talking during the performance.
